Bar Association speaker stresses education, volunteering at luncheon
“Just because an attorney chooses to be helping vulnerable populations doesn't mean they’re not competent. They could have gone to a big firm or private practice and been very lucrative, but they chose to take that other path,” Torres-Linares says.
Torres-Linares says both attorneys and community groups can volunteer to give back to their communities. She is a founder of LegalPrep.org. The group offers free, legal-themed college-prep information to underserved populations in Chicago.
